Desert Blue is a 1998 American comedy/drama film written and directed by Morgan J. Freeman and starring Brendan Sexton III, Kate Hudson, Christina Ricci, Casey Affleck, Sara Gilbert, and John Heard.
The story centers on a rising Hollywood starlet (Hudson) who becomes "marooned" in a small desert town while on a roadtrip with her father. There, she gets to know the town's rather eccentric residents, including one (Ricci) whose hobby is pipe bombs and another (Sexton) who is trying to carry out his father's dream of building a waterpark in the desert.
Liev Schreiber makes a small (audio) appearance as the voice of Mickey Moonday. The B-52's lead singer Fred Schneider provides the voice of a radio DJ that is, apparently, the only media in the film's fictional location.
Scenes were filmed in Goldfield, Nevada to portray the fictional small town.
